Friday (4/3) Virginia Data on COVID-19 Finds +306 Cases (to 2,012), +66 Hospitalizations (to 312), +5 Deaths (to 46) From Yesterday


See below for graphics of the newly posted COVID-19 numbers by the Virginia Department of Health. So, at this point (4/3), in Virginia we’re at 2,012 total reported cases, 312 hospitalizations and 46 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 306 (+18%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly higher rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 222 (+15%). As for hospitalizations, they went up 66 (+27%), from 246 to 312, which is a faster rate of increase than the previous day (which was up 38, or +18%). Deaths went up 5 (from 41 to 46), compared to an increase of 7 (from 34 to 41) the previous day. So overall, not great news, almost any way you look at it. Hopefully, this curve will start “flattening out” in coming days if we keep up the social distancing and other measures. Also, of course, we need a LOT more testing capacity, PPE, etc.

There's no paywall on Blue Virginia, and we definitely want to keep it that way! If you want to help support our work, you can donate here - thanks! Also, you can sign up for our weekly email list here.
